I am one of those annoying pollyannas who like the rain. I see it as a natural cleansing. I appreciate the need to water plants, to fill rivers and reservoirs, to depollinate the air. My whole zen light/dark, good/bad philosophy demands rain to counterbalance the sunshine. I guess I can get tired of rain of biblical proportions, such as Hawaii has been experiencing, and the backyard flooding is mildly annoying. But really, rain is a good thing. Bring it on!
